Claims on engine warranties are limited to manufacturer defects in the pistons, heads, block, crankshafts, rockers, and oil pumps. There are countess others who have posted this same problem on various message boards and forums all over the internet. This primarily happens when putting into gear with foot on brake, then taking foot off brake and slightly pressing accelerator pedal. Please investigate this - there is something wrong with these Jetta's! Vw paid for 25% of parts and labor. There may be some variances between the photos shown and the actual product.
. We do not require a core charge or a return of the old part or engine. While the contact was driving 15 mph, the vehicle suddenly shifted into first gear, moved forward and stalled. Currently I've been told that the warranty will not cover the repair due to owner abuse! The contact also stated that the sunroof leaked when it rained. The vehicle jumps several feet forward or reverse. This alone is a serious danger due to the high rate of speed of these flying cast aluminum fragments let alone the complete loss of vehicle movement on possible busy routes. I have found 100's of complaints on consumer sites about this car.
Latest incident was pulling out from a side street and the car stalled, causing a very dangerous situation. This is worse the longer and hotter transmission gets. After 5 days I realized it was coming from the flywheel. This transmission unit includes a transmission case, valve body, tail shaft and housing, torque converter automatic only , and all internal lubricated parts. The dealer tells me that this is to be expected from a manual transmission that is operated by software. Something needs to be done about this clutch issue before people get killed.
This should be covered by vw as a recall. The original auto part must be returned using the provided shipping label. The failure was involved in a crash because of the faulty transmission; there were no injuries. Most were from a different flywheel manufacturer and I was surprised to see mine was made by sachs these can cause serious damage to a vehicle if it breaks apart. This has happened with every person who has driven the car, even very experienced drivers with manual transmission.
While driving 70mph going up a hill he lost all power to the vehicle and it felt as if it was in neutral. I would have to return shift into neutral; step on the clutch several times and I am able to get into 'r'. Any clutch is expected to last at least 90,000 miles. Buy a recycled 2008 Volkswagen Jetta transmission and save thousands of dollars. I am assuming that the repair shop is going to tell me that the transmission is shot and that I will need to replace it. The failure mileage was approximately 21,000. Vw dealer wants to install a new dmf!.
Though additional parts and accessories may be attached upon purchase, coverage does not extend to sensors, switches, cables, electronics, belts, hoses, water pumps, or manifolds, nor damage caused through overheating or improper lubrication. I previously owned a 2001 manual tdi Jetta and drove it for 10 years with no clutch complaints. The door hit my car. This is a known issue among 2010 manual tdi owners and one frequently discussed because it is very dangerous. In a panic I tried to start the car, but another nuisance got in the way.
Not long ago I read a favorable review publication escapes me about my car except for the fact that the reviewers experienced the same problem and suggested the automatic instead. This car seems really well made and is alot of fun to drive. This issue is at least frustrating, but at most, especially at intersections, it can be dangerous. The purchased item may need to be repainted, refinished, or reupholstered for proper color match. When I got home, I searched online for what it could be and it turns out I am not the only one this has happened to.
The failure mileage was approximately 7,000. Note all returns and cancellations require a prior authorization. The vehicle was taken to a dealer the codes where removed. The current mileage was 4000 and the failure mileage was 600. There are 21 choices for the 2008 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Assembly!!! When my husband has attempted to drive it, he stalled it five times in a row the first drive, and in subsequent drives stalls it every other pull out.
